WRX Spotlight Review: Cleveland Huntington Beach SOFT putters

Product: Cleveland Huntington Beach SOFT Putters



Pitch: When you think of a $130 putter you typically think of cheap inserts and "gimmicky" shapes or paint. Not so with the new Cleveland Golf Huntington Beach SOFT putters. The HB SOFT line has traditional-looking blades and popular mallets that should suit the eye of most golfers. All models have a matte silver finish to reduce glare and simple, yet effective alignment markings.

Our take on the Cleveland Huntington Beach SOFT putters



The HB SOFT line is now made of 304 Stainless Steel, for better feel, said to be about 50 percent softer than 17-4 Stainless.

The big story on the HB SOFT line is the new face milling that helps with mishit putts. The precision milled putter face has Speed Optimized Face Tech that attempts to increase the ball speed on putts that aren't hit dead center. This CNC milled diamond pattern increases friction for more consistency and better roll out on toe/heel struck shots, according to Cleveland.

    The first Huntington Beach putters were very solid performers and very underrated. The new ones feel amazing if you like a very soft feel in the putter. Distance control seemed very consistent although I was leaving the longer putts short everytime. But that is something I could fix with time. But for now my Sigma 2 Tyne is firmly in my bag.

    I've got the slant neck 11 and think it's great. I changed to a pistol grip for better feel as the stock one is pretty mushy. Made a big difference. Nice compact mallet with some toe hang.

    I have the plumbers neck red Spider Tour now but I rolled the slant neck 11 and loved it. Have you happened to try any of the Spider putters and if so what made you pick the 11?

    I find the spiders too big, and I'm not a fan of the big legs on them. The spider is substantially larger.

    I have the previous generation HB putter#6 and I love how soft it feels. I was under the impression this new line actually feels firmer? Just more forgiving.
